Outside the Courtroom

Ruth lives in Bergen County with her husband, her two sons and dog, Indiana. When she isn’t in the office, Ruth loves going to the gym, running Spartan races, a good shopping spree, quality time with friends and family, and all things Boston sports, including the Red Sox, Patriots and Celtics (please don’t hold this against her, Giants and Yankees fans!). She is also a die-hard Duke basketball fan (don’t hold this against her as well).
